Seattle Mariners acting manager Robby Thompson said Tuesday, Aug. 13, that 2B Dustin Ackley will continue to receive an extended look in the outfield in the coming weeks. "We have to see what we have out there with Ackley in center field," Thompson said. "We kind of know what we have with (OF Michael Saunders) in center and the corners. There's a chance we'll have (OF Franklin Gutierrez) coming back - and where he's going to fit in. So we're just trying to get Ack in there."

Seattle Mariners OF Mike Morse (quadriceps) was scheduled to play in his fourth rehab game in right field for Triple-A Tacoma late last week, and he could rejoin the team soon. Morse hit .222 (2-for-9) with a home run and a double in his first three games with Tacoma. "I talked to him briefly today and he's champing at the bit," acting manager Robby Thompson said. "He says he feels real good." Morse can come off the disabled list whenever he's ready. Morse is closer to a return than OF Franklin Gutierrez (hamstring), who is also rehabbing at Tacoma.
Fantasy Tip: Endy Chavez and Jason Bay are in danger of losing serious playing time or being cut altogether when Morse returns.

Seattle Mariners SS Brad Miller is batting leadoff Friday, July 5, although he's hitting only .200 (4-for-20) with a .300 on-base percentage. The Mariners have yet to settle for a single leadoff guy, trying OFs Jason Bay, Endy Chavez, Michael Saunders and Franklin Gutierrez there. Bay and Chavez aren't in the lineup Friday. Miller has experience with hitting leadoff in the minors and feels comfortable at the top spot.

The Seattle Mariners placed OF Franklin Gutierrez (hamstring) on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, June 25, and recalled 2B Dustin Ackley from the minors in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Baker notes that Ackley has been brought up to play the outfield. Remember, Mike Morse (quadriceps) is also on the DL. However, it remains to be seen how much Ackley will play in the outfield, with Endy Chavez, Michael Saunders and Raul Ibanez also in play in the outfield from the left side. For now, Ackley should be owned in AL-only leagues in case he winds up playing often.
